This "bag like" carrier is not a good carrier and indeed dangerous but that doesn't mean all baby wearing is bad. There are some great slings and pouches out there. Please do research and learn how to carry baby. Baby wearing is SO beautiful if done the right way!

Felt sad after reading about the unfortunate deaths. I hope a lot of the parents who bought these sling carriers were already informed about the hazard that it can give to their child.
